Orlando Terrorist’s Father Ran for President of Afghanistan
Gay Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen’s father once ran for President of Afghanistan.
He’s also a supporter of the taliban.
But I’m sure his son’s muslim faith played no part in the deaths of 50 people today, right?
From Washington Post:
The father of Omar Mateen, identified by police as the man behind the carnage at an Orlando nightclub early Sunday morning, is an Afghan man who holds strong political views, including support for the Afghan Taliban.
Seddique Mateen, who has been referred to as Mir Seddique in early news reports, hosted a television show called Durand Jirga on a channel called Payam-e-Afghan, which broadcasts from California. In it, the elder Mateen speaks in the Dari language on a variety of political subjects. Dozens of videos are posted on a channel under Seddique Mateen’s name on YouTube. A phone number and post office box that are displayed on the show were traced back to the Mateen home in Florida. Mateen also owns a non-profit organization under the name Durand Jirga which is registered in Port St. Lucie, Fla.
In one video, Mateen expresses gratitude towards the Afghan Taliban, while denouncing the Pakistani government.
“Our brothers in Waziristan, our warrior brothers in Taliban movement, and national Afghan Taliban are rising up,” he says. “Inshallah the Durand line issue will be solved soon.”
Mateen could not be reached for comment by The Post. His cellphone has been switched off.
A little weird, no?
Sounds like Omar came from a militant family.
Iran is the world’s leading sponsor of terror.
